Distribution Clerk (Former Employee), Memphis, TNSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: having many make friends/
Cons: consistently changing needed schemes around that became difficult when boxes was heavy.
A typical day at work consisted of understanding various schemes at any given time and have the ability to label the schemes and 10-key the mail by zip codes in an efficient manner. I leaned to 10-key by touch and understand the schemes to achieve needed daily quota. Management was very attentive to the workers needs and always concerned for our safety. – more... My co-workers and I worked as a team to ensure the mail entered the facility and exited the facility in a timely manner to reach it's destination. The hardest part of the job was constantly keying the mail moving. However, with the help of co-workers it was difficult but always achievable. The most enjoyable part of the job came when all mail was keyed and distributed to it's proper location with the help of co-workers that always working as a team. – less

Loading and unloading mail, packages and magazines. I learned how to lift over 70 pounds. Management and my coworkers were very nice and functional. The hardest part about the job is the inconsistency with scheduling.

Good salary but does not encourage promotional positions.
Mail Processing Clerk (Current Employee), Dallas, TexasSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits.
Cons: ergonomics are not used to curtail propensity to injuries.
A very good job with great benefits. Some managers are not trained in employee diversification or motivational tactics and can create a hostile environment. Flexible work hours and off days can accommodate most schedules. I have formed lifelong friendships. The hardest part of the job is some physical aspects which require excessive standing, lifting – more... which can cause wear and tear over extended periods of time. – less

PSE
PSE Clerk (Current Employee), Westwego, La/ New OrleansSeptember 16, 2014
Don't become a PSE it is no way to live!! My hours are based on if someone goes on vacation or is sick, and if the supervisors or clerk likes me enough to call me in when someone calls in. I was haired to work in the plant and was guaranteed hours. I switched form the plant to a station with no hours and no warning. PSE stands for Postal Support Employee – more... tuh!! We do the same amount of work as the regular clerks, but we get little pay and limited benefits. I have to work 80hrs with overtime to make a 1000.00 check. – less

horrible
Mail Handler Assistant (Former Employee), fort worth txSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: money
Cons: every thing else
the pay was good for the work but i have never in my life worked for a more unorganized, company . the management there is horrible they don't even communicate to each other when it comes to the employees. they will basically work you like slaves and expect you to allow people to talk to you absolutely any way that they feel. they literally don't care – more... about the employees AT ALL all they care about it getting the mail out so that they look good to the next person . each and every manager there is out for there own good . as long as they get their area clear they don't care about the rest. – less

Sucks
CCA (Current Employee), Central IndianaSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
No life balance. MGMT expects you to work 7 days a week (yes there is package delivery on sunday, and regulars don't have to do it, just CCAS) getting time off is difficult. They over work, under pay, micro manage and manage poorly.
